Overview

Unul dintre cele mai citite romane ale secolului XX, care s-a bucurat de o ecranizare de succes, O calatorie in India se inspira din momentele de glorie ale expansiunii coloniale britanice, dar si din tensiunile rasiale ce marcheaza fiecare moment al vietii in colonii. Pe acest fundal, Adela Quested si prietena ei, doamna Moore, turiste britanice in Chandrapore, descopera ca, in ciuda legaturilor puternice cu comunitatea coloniala locala, isi doresc sa se apropie mai mult de savoarea si de povestile nestiute ale Indiei. Dar, cand destinul le aduce alaturi de Cyril Fielding si de prietenul lui din partea locului, doctorul Aziz, spiritele comunitatii din Chandrapore isi pierd linistea si vietile tuturor, colonist sau colonizator, isi schimba dramatic ritmul.
